Fury -x or R9 390 x will give better effect to dig? As for the profit vs electricity used ?
post #21242 of 21252
FuryX will be more efficient. I recommand R9 280 for Zcash, or RX 480 for Ether.

Make sure you underclock and undervolt.

What is a good expectation for a watercooled 8gb 480 with a base clock of 1265?

Just picked up an XFX OC 480 and will be putting it with a Ryzen 1800x. Watercooling will follow after I pull it from my Dell with a i7 4790.

Out of curiosity, why 480 over something like a 390 if you dont mind me asking? Ive been seeing them both for the same price (175-200 USD) recently, and the 390 seems to be 50% high hash (35 vs 22) than the 480. This is a genuine question btw. I got out of mining way back when 7970s came out, and just discovered Ether today.

Power consumption.

Also, there's no different between a 290 and 390 for mining (besides slightly faster memory), so you might as well get the 290 if you don't pay for power.

If you don't care about heat, the best card will be 7970/7950/280X/280/285/380X/380 for mining Zcash. Those cards can't mine Ether if it has less than 3GB of VRAM.


@Ceaddar The 480 can make $2 to $2.5 a day before power bills.

YOu need more than 3gb for ether mining? do you buy chance have a link to something where I can learn more about the reqs for it? Because that was certainly not one I expected

Kinda on the side then. Where I am, these are the brackets:

100: 7970/50, 280/x
150: RX 470, 290/x, 380/x, 390/x
200: RX 480

What would you go with purely for mining (and electricity is cheap as crap here btw)

I'm on mobile right now. Google ethereum dag size vram.

The $100 bracket is the best retrun on investment, but ethash based mining algo has a sloely increasing VRAM requirement.

The $150 bracket is ideal. They require less mobos for the same hashrate, which helps to drive down overall costs and reduce maintance efforts.

The RX 470 and 480 are for people who have expensive power.

Even if your power is free, I recommand slightly under volting the chips while running at stock clocks to reduce chances of failure.

Thank you for the info. An extra $60 a month would be reasonable. +Rep thumb.gif

Ty for the info. So basicaly what I gather 2gb simply wont be enough pretty soon, but 3gb should be good for a while, and more than that pretty well indeterminately? out of curiosity I set up claymore miner on my main rig, and im averaging around 12 MHs a card (for a 7970) on win 7. Does that seem reasonable? I know people were getting 20 or so. Is the dag what affecting me now? Or is there something else I should try changing?

EDIT: I do have an old version of it, but GPU-Z is only showing 6% gpu load?

Try using the Claymore miner and mine Zcash if you have anything below R9 290. Zcash should be slightly more profitable for slower cards.

Use whattomine.com to estimate profits.
